further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
Slow day, so hopefully I'm not too out of line in posting this, but there was recent mention of McCray and where he might land in the rotation. I seemed to remember hi being a really good TE in HS as well.
Anybody think this would be a possible 2-way player? Or maybe even just be switched to add more competition?
Have the rules changed on coaches monitoring workouts or is this a reporter stretching the truth to fit a narrative?
Tuesday's winter workout at Michigan State was an easy day for the coaching staff. Most of the Spartan assistants quietly stalked the outer edge of conditioning drills or watched with crossed arms as their players took over control.
Two-thirds of the way through their version of the dreaded annual college football tradition of winter conditioning, Mark Dantonio and the rest of the Michigan State coaches like to hand the reins to the team's new leaders. Players from each position group direct teammates through the circuit of sprints, jumps and other creative, torturous tests of fitness and toughness. Afterward, the group leaders are responsible for grading each individual on the day's work. Coaches hope this format creates accountability on a roster that has to replace several influential veterans this spring.
“She puts together an individualized plan for every kid on a scholarship to make sure that they have a path to getting where they want to in the timeframe that they have. She realizes some people may not stay the whole five years at the school, so you want to get out of there with a degree if you do leave a year early. She certainly wants to make sure that they leave Michigan with something in their hands.”
“She was just straight up and everything was coming from the heart. She was just straight up saying if the boys have like female problems (they can talk to her), she can talk about grades, she help them out with different stuff. It’s like a team mom. Every morning she eats breakfast with them, eats dinner with them… she is always with these guys on a lot of stuff. She was impressive. She was really impressive.”
